    Not certain in this case it would need an injunction.

    It may actually be if it was reported during the trial he was also a Coach at Celtic Boys Club, as that name is now synonymous with paedophiles, the Judge may have ruled it would have prejudiced the case as currently he was only accused of offences at the school.

    I could be talking bollocks though.

    3 found guilty of paedophilia, 2 with indecent images of minors, with Cairney and McCafferty to be tried imminently for sexual abuse of children.

    Sick to the core, how anyone can follow that club knowing this is beyond comprehension.

    Yes though they called it Barrowfield Football Centre in the media until the verdict was given now they can call it by its proper name of Celtic Boys Club

    School teacher, who took inappropriate pictures in a football changing room. At the same time he had contact with kids via St. Pats BC? Are we to believe his behavior was limited to the school?

    I suspect it's reporting restrictions imposed and requested by the prosecution as it prevents any association between the cases - not unuusal in criminal trials where connected defendants are being tried separately.

    Delighted that he's been found guilty.

    It is beyond all reasonable doubt that there was a full scale paedophile ring in operation at Parkhead.

    Precisely. A known and convicted child abuser, freed to live as if nothing happened (for now). No doubt he’ll appeal too.

    Hopefully every single victim of these scumbags comes forward, to allow justice to take its path.

    Given that he was charged with taking indecent images of children at Barrowfield between January 1987 and December 1988 I think it's safe to say it was Celtic Boys Club.

    Separate Entity FC is fuckin rancid to its rotten core.

    You are witnessing a Spotlight cut and paste situation and the Police, media and politicians chose to ignore it - when those in power abandon all sense of morality then such institutions no longer have authority and should not be respected.

    The Police will go to great lengths to apprehend a Bluenose who allegedly stood on a sandcastle at a beach, based on the social media say so of an anti Rangers bigot who wasn’t present at the alleged non incident, but turn a blind eye to all of the above.

    Only the blind or the wilfully ignorant could say otherwise. The problem is certain sections of the community are turning their blind eye to it and the government are being wilfully ignorant , so it will be left to a journalist or someone in a position of power from outside Scotland to state the blindingly obvious.

    What a disgusting beast. How many convicted paedos at CBC now?

    There should be a full investigation here. There must be more paedos unconvicted and victims needing support that have yet to come forward.

    Additionally, those who aided and abetted those paedos by keeping their mouths shut also need convicted - be they dead or alive.

    Scottish justice system is letting victims down.

    The civil remedy known as an injunction in England & Wales is called "interdict" in Scots Law. I very much doubt there was one here, I don't even know if you can interdict the reporting of a criminal trial.

    The Court can (on the motion of the Crown, the defence, or on its own motion), and I imagine has, impose reporting restrictions on proceedings until the jury has come to a verdict to ensure that anything published does not influence them when they are deliberating on the evidence led.

    Breaching these restrictions is a criminal offence and contempt of court.

    Exactly mate, exactly.

    It pays to have friends in places of influence.

    That phrase is a blessing to paedophiles in Scotland. They thrive on the power they have to silence their victims and the powers that be in Scotland are protecting them further.

    So the school magazine printed censored pictures of teenage boys in a shower, was there no employee of the school who thought this might be upsetting for the children involved or question why an adult had a camera in the shower area.

    Wait. That almost got past me in amongst everything else.

    He worked at the Trophy Centre and claims he didn't know his own boss? Did he say this during the trial? If so, did nobody challenge him? That's an obvious lie.

    As I type, I see BBC Scotland at least reporting this and mentioning CBC and Torbett. It must be obvious even to a moron that all these instances of paedophilia are linked

    Don't think he said that mate?

    King worked at Torbett’s company, the Trophy Centre, but denied being close to him.

    During Torbett’s trial he named King as one of the coaches at the boys’ club.

    Perhaps Torbett decided he wasn't taking the rap on his own and decided to throw King under a bus.

    https://www.childabuseinquiry.scot/faqs/

    In the terms of reference you will see that the inquiry only has a remit to examine institutions or organisations who had the permissions to "care" for a child, such as local authorities or some religious bodies who operated residential care homes for children. It does not include a remit to examine cases of abuse where that took place in a private residence or in the child's own home.

    By default, therefore, any organised paedophile activities or other abuse that took care in a normal sports club enviroment, or say on a Sunday School or Sports Club away from home trip, would NOT be covered by the inquiry.

    In short, the devolved assembly at Holyrood will NOT be investigating the abuse at CBC, nor would they investigate any abuse carrried out by religious organisations, unless those abuses took place in a residential care home run by that religious organisation

    So, it isn't true to say that the terms of the inquiry specifically exempt these types of bodies from investigation. They are simply not included, but the effect is exactly the same. They are excluded from the inquiry

    I can't find the statement but I recall that maybe last year or the year before that celtic released a statement that was heavily criticised at the time as it asked for abuse victims to come forward to them rather than the police. This was before all the separate entity talk had come out. Why would they want victims from a completely different organisation report it to them ???

    While I agree with the sentiments, how can the club be shut down?
    It is a company owned by shareholders. Who has the power to shut it down? I think we are relying on Tim's discovering their own moral compass, or integrity and refuse to fund this rancid organisation.
    That's just not going to happen, cause their hatred of us has no equal.

    Sends shivers down your spine knowing the bigot Yousef and nonce Martin Henry are the two people entrusted to make sure this is investigated fully.

    Living in England though it's far from perfect does make me grateful that for all of it's failings we don't have a government willing to turn a blind eye to the actions of a football club just to win elections

    Maybe they have investigated.

    You can't force victims to speak up and they probably won't.

    Many of the victims will have moved on in their life and don't want to go over it all again, especially so publicly. Some won't because of the fear of reprisals from those at the head of the ring. Some will have families of their own and don't want to bring them into it.

    Its not just as simple as we'd like it to be.

    But with a few convictions linked to Celtc now, all since the Savile scandal burst and child abuse came into focus, I think we all know there has been a lot more to it.

    Clearly as well the authorities are acting on it. Witnesses, team mates and others involved will have been spoken to. Maybe that's how some of the convictions have come about. But it's not an easy issue to force.

    The English government is far worse than even Celtic are when it comes to child abuse, the major parties would have been disbanded long ago if the truth came out about what went on behind closed doors decades ago.

    Same person who supplied them and other VIP’s across Britain kids was pictured with Kelly/Stein and was pals with VIP Scottish paedos linked to Celtic.

    Full circle.

    There is a much bigger question concerning who at Celtic FC approved Torbett’s return, and more important why?

    How far up the club hierarchy did the abuse go?

    These are the questions any two bob hack would be probing.

    Spot on. There was a photo of King, Torbett and Cairney with their CBC team on one of the threads yesterday. It was the first time I'd seen it.
    Glaringly obvious now that there was a paedophile ring operating. Just a question as to who else were involved. These chumps are the fall guys for the bigger fish in my opinion.

    edit. the photo's on the post above.

    Must be one of the biggest humiliations in football. A club that can’t publish a proper photo of historic successes of their youth team. Here we have a photo a team winning a trophy but the picture can’t be published with the faces of any of the players shown.

    Remind the tim in your life of this next time he starts his Sevco pish
